Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat) : : Male : : Adult : : Large
Nico originally came in to Safe Haven back in 2019 with his two littermates, Jax and Saia. They are a mix of Lab and German Shepherd and unfortunately were just living outside in a kennel all day at their first home. The owners noticed that the dogs just wanted to be inside and actually be part of a family, and they felt they could not provide the time and home they deserved. The dogs also had killed a neighbor's cat, so they felt the dogs needed a home without other small pets - so they asked Safe Haven to take in Nico and his siblings.
When Nico arrived we also noticed he was limping on a rear leg, and after a few vet appointments it was determined Nico had torn a ligament in his "knee" and he was a great candidate for surgery to repair the ligament. After a couple months of rehab Nico was ready for adoption and found a great home in the summer of 2019. This family loved Nico and gave him a good home, ensuring that he stayed a healthy weight to keep his "new knee" in good shape.
